The Metropolitan Police officer, who is charged with 44 offenses against 12 women, faces nine more charges – including six counts of rape. David Carrick, 47, was charged with a further six counts of rape, one count of false imprisonment, one count of indecent assault and possession of a firearm with intent to create fear of violence against a complainant in July 2003.

The CPS said it had authorized Hertfordshire Police to charge the police officer with the additional offences. Carrick is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates Court on Wednesday in connection with the new charges.

The Metropolitan Police confirmed that the charge of using a firearm preceded Carrick’s service in an armed role in the force. A Met spokesperson said: “We understand these allegations are extremely serious and concerning.

Referrals have been made to the Independent Office for Police Conduct as the investigation progresses. The Met’s Professional Standards Directorate continues to monitor developments closely and will provide any support possible to Hertfordshire officers.

“National regulations state that any misconduct proceedings must await the outcome of the criminal case.”
